Candyman Farewell to the Flesh

So much attention is heaped upon Clive Barker’s Candyman that it’s oftentimes easy to forget that the titular villain didn’t just kill in one film, but rather in three. Early next year Scream Factory makes you remember that fact, as they’re unleashing the 1995 sequel onto Blu-ray for the very first time.

Read on for all the details!

From the Press Release:
His myth has endured for generations. His legacy is eternal rage. And now he’s back… with a vengeance! A film by award-winning filmmaker Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) and based on legendary Clive Barker’s popular short story, CANDYMAN: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH continues the tale of the phantom-like figure who wreaks a terrible fate upon those who chant his name five times while looking into a mirror… and come face to face with grisly death.

Executive produced by Clive Barker (Nightbreed, Lord of Illusions), the cult horror hit CANDYMAN: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH stars Tony Todd (Final Destination) and Kelly Rowan (“The O.C.”) with Timothy Carhart (“24,” Witness) as Paul McKeever and Veronica Cartwright (The Town That Dreaded Sundown) as Octavia.

On January 6, 2015, SCREAM FACTORY™ is proud to present CANDYMAN: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH Blu-ray edition on home entertainment shelves everywhere. Arriving for the first time on Blu-ray™, this highly anticipated release contains insightful bonus content, featuring all-new interviews with Tony Todd and Veronica Cartwright, audio commentary with Bill Condon, and more! A must-have for horror enthusiasts, movie collectors, and loyal fans, CANDYMAN: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH Blu-ray is priced to own at $24.97.

A victim of unspeakable evil while he lived, the “Candyman” (Tony Todd) has become evil incarnate in his afterlife. This time, he haunts the city of New Orleans, where a young schoolteacher named Annie Tarrant (Kelly Rowan) is struggling to solve the brutal murder of her father. The locals insist that he was slain by the Candyman, but Annie is not convinced… until she unwittingly summons the monster forth, learns the secret of his power, and discovers the link that connects her to him. But can she stop him before he kills again?

Special Features:

  • Audio Commentary with director Bill Condon
  • The Candyman Legacy – a new interview with Tony Todd (25 mins)
  • Down Memory Lane – a new interview with Veronica Cartwright (12 mins)
  • Theatrical Trailer

Must-See: Jurassic Park meets The Walking Dead in The Jurassic Dead Trailer

Published

on

“Evil Always Finds a Way…”

I think I have a new must-see movie.

It’s called The Jurassic Dead and is it, duh, part Jurassic Park and part “The Walking Dead” in that it features a T-Rex that turns those it attacks into zombies!

Talk about a winning premise. Personally, I’d love to see more quality filmmakers take on films like this. After all, it was a f*cking blast to see Mike Mendez’s Big-Ass Spider.

Anyhow, today we have The Jurassic Dead‘s first trailer and poster for, not only your own viewing pleasure, but I’m sure the viewing pleasure of all your unsuspecting friends/family members on social media.

You can check out the glorious poster to the right and the silly-ass trailer below. Like ’em, love ’em, share ’em, and then let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Milko Davis and Thomas Martwick from a script by Producer Michelle Pacitto and stars American professional bodybuilder/Producer Andy Haman, Cooper Elliott, Shale Le Page, Ruselis Perry, Mia Klosterman, and Nicole Goeke.

Wild Eye Releasing will release The Jurassic Dead in the U.S Summer 2018.

Synopsis:

A unit of mercenaries must team up with a group of tech-geek students after American is struck with an EMP attack. Deep in the desert, they find the source of the terror, a mad scientist who has also just created a living dead T-Rex dinosaur, one who turns everyone it attacks into a zombie. Now they must scramble to stay alive and save the planet from the ultimate undead predator.
